not the best...
on 22 July 2014
not a great entry in the series. it is a giant hardback sized paper back, not the normal size (which has now been announced for 2015) even though I waited a year after the hardback. There are only 217 pages in it, not 400 as advertised which makes it very expensive, and one of the author's names is not even spelled correctly on the cover! Stand up Jospeph.
The stories are not the greatest, and one is a 50's style SF story with nothing to do with Man Kzin wars at all. luckily it is short. Others propound pretty simplistic political views, and I prefer to use journalists and political comentatoes for that, not people who write about large cats.
Having said that, I read it all the way through once I had started, even when I shoucl have been doing other tings, so it mustn't be that bad.
If you have the other nooks in this series (and known space) you're going to buy it anyway. I woucl just suggest that you wait (if you can) until the mass market edition comes out next year instead of this (although the cover shot on Amazon still has Jospeph on it)
